P r e s -i dent's message 

I am in my thirteenth year and I 
am very grateful for the progress we 
have made in those years. The 
enroUment has increased each 
year. As we all know, Mary Baldwin 
is a tuition-driven college, so we 
have succeeded mightily in 
increasing the income from tuition. 
Alumnae/i have expressed 
confidence in Mary Baldwin 
through increased gifts to the 
Annual Fund, as well as through 
significant capital gifts. These are 
allowing us to improve and 
rehabilitate campus facilities (as 
you will see in the article on the 
Administration Building), to 
support the areas of math and 
science, and to dedicate significant 
resources to technology. In 
addition, the economy of the 
country is strong. The broader 
economy always has an impact on 
the economy of the college. 

Our success has come through 
the efforts of many people, all of 
whom have worked creatively and 
with much diligence to make a clear 
niche for Mary Baldwin as an 
institution based in the liberal arts 

and dedicated to women. We have 
defined ourselves in the market with 
clarity and are becoming well known 
as the institution to which women 
go if they want to become leaders. 

Ann Petro Hayes, featured in 
this issue of the magazine, is a good 
example of the kind of leaders 
coming out of this college. And the 
article on The Virginia Women's 
Institute for Leadership gives you an 
update on the progress of that 
remarkable program. 

While I am grateful for the 
success of Mary Baldwin, 1 must be 
careful not to speak overconfidently. 
Thirteen years is a very short period 
of time in the life of an institution. 
The difference that has not yet been 
made is the development of a 
substantial endowment. We cannot 
say that Mary Baldwin is a securely 
placed institution until we have an 
endowment of sufficient size to 
ensure our future. 

Why is an endowment so 
important? It is a protection in times 
of difficulty. It is the edge of quality 
in times of success. In success, it 
provides additional support through 

earnings for scholarships, to support 
faculty salaries, to bring recognized 
scholars and speakers to campus, and 
to enhance students' experience of 
the college in ways that befit a 
prestigious institution. In times of 
difficulty, endowment earnings 
provide a cushion against cutbacks, 
reduced programs and curtailed 
academic activities. 

An endowment is essential to 
ultimately secure the future of Mary 
Baldwin College. I cannot stress this 
point too much, and it is my sincere 
hope that we can join together in 
the days ahead to take this next 
critical step forward. 

In the meantime, 1 hope you 
enjoy reading in this issue about the 
many accomplishments and creative 
endeavors of our multi-faceted 
college community.

Geraldine Ferraro Inaugural 
Speaker for MBC's Smyth 
Leadership Lecture Series 

Geraldine Ferraro's visit to Mary Baldwin 
CollegeonTuesday, September 23, added 
yet another to her long list of firsts. Ms. 
Ferraro, author and political leader, was 
the inaugural speaker for MBC's Smyth 
Leadership Lecture Series. The series was 
established by the Smyth Foundation, an 
organization founded by MBC Trustee H. 
Gordon Smyth, former DuPont senior vice 
president for employee relations, and his 
wife Mary Beth Smyth '47. Ms. Ferraro 
spoke on "Women in Leadership: Past, 
Present and Future," to a huge crowd of 
students, faculty, staff, community leaders 
and visitors on the Page Terrace of the 
Martha S. Grafton Library. 

Geraldine A. Ferraro earned her place 
in history as the first woman vice 
presidential candidate on a national party 
ticket. She was first elected to Congress 
from New York's Ninth Congressional 
District in Queens in 1978 and served 
three terms in the House of 
Representatives. Her committee 

assignments in Congress included the 
Public Works Committee, Post Office and 
Civil Service Committee, and Budget 
Committee, where she was a strong voice 
against the Reagan Administration's 
economic policies. Ms. Ferraro also 
served on the Select Committee on 
Aging where she was an advocate 
for the elderly, fightingproposed 
cuts in Social Security and 

During her Congressional 
career, Ferraro spearheaded 
efforts to pass the Equal Rights 
Amendment. She also 
sponsored the Women's 
Economic Equity Act, which 
ended pension discrimination 
against women, provided job 
options for displaced 
homemakers, and enabled 
homemakers to open IRA's. 
Ms. Ferraro is a co-host of 
"Crossfire," a political interview 
program which airs nightly on CNN. 
She is also a partner in the CEO 
Perspective Group, a consulting firm 
which advises top executives. In 1 994, she 
was appointed as U.S. Ambassador to the 
United Nations Human Rights 
Commission by President Clinton, and 
she served in that position through 1996. 
She served as a public delegate in February 
1993 and was also the alternate United 
States delegate to the World Conference 
on Human Rights held in Vienna in June 
1 993 and vice-chair of the U.S. Delegation 
at the Fourth World Conference on 
Women held in Beijing in September 

An active participant in the nation's 
foreign policy debate, she served as a board 
member of the National Democratic 
Institute of International Affairs and as a 
member of the Council on Foreign 

Before entering politics, Ms. Ferraro 
taught elementary school in the New York 
City Public Schools for five years. During 
that time, she also put herself through 
Fordham Law School at night. After 
spending 13 years at home raising her 
three children, she joined the Queens 
County District Attorney's Office. There, 
she started the Special Victims Bureau, 
supervising the prosecution of sex crimes, 
child abuse, domestic violence and violent 

crimes against senior citizens. 

Ms. Ferraro has honorary degrees from 
a number of colleges and universities 
nationwide. She currently sits on the 
Fordham Law School Board of Visitors, 
the New York Easter Seal Society, the 
National Italian American Foundation, 
the Board of Advocates of the Planned 
Parenthood Federation of America, the 
Board of Advisors of the National Breast 
Cancer Research Fund, the Pension Rights 
Center board, and the board of New York

Ferraro has written two books: Ferraro, 
M)i Story, which recounts the 1984 
presidential campaign, and Geraldine 
Ferraro: Changing History . 

MBC Annual Fund Breaks 

$1 Million for Fourth Straight Year 

Mary Baldwin College fund raisers set a 
new unrestricted gift record, bringing in 
$1,265,000 during the 1996-97 Annual 
Fund campaign. This marked the fourth 
straight year that the Annual Fund has 
surpassed the $1 million mark. 

1996-97 Annual Fund Director 
Tracey Allen said, "These unrestricted 
gifts are the most difficult to raise, though 
in many ways they are the most vital to 
the college. I am very proud of the 
college's success in this year's fund 
raising. Our alumnae and friends have 
shown a great confidence in the mission 
and administration of Mary Baldwin." 

A big part of the record-setting year 
was a two percent increase in alumnae 
participation, bringing that total to 40 
percent, according to Mark Atchison, 
vice president for institutional 
advancement. Contributions to the 
Annual Fund help support the overall 
college operations, as tuition and fees 
do not cover all costs of running the 
college. This year, Annual Fund 
donations were up nearly 10 percent 
over the previous fiscal year. 

The 1997-98 Annual Fund effort is 
already under way and is being led by 
new director Elizabeth Outland Branner. 
The goal for this year's Annual Fund has 
been set at $1.3 million. 

Tracey Allen resigned as the Annual 
Fund director in August to pursue her 

The Mary Baldwin College Magazine 

law degree at The University of Virginia. 
Branner most recently served as associate 
director of the Annual Fund, coming to 
Mary Baldwin in 1995. She received her 
B.A. from Wake Forest University and 
earned her master's from the College of 
William & Mary. 

Two new fund raisers also joined the 
Annual Fund team in August. Susie 
Kierson Miller '91 and Julie Westhafer 
will both serve as associate directors of 
the Annual Fund. Miller received her 
master's degree from the Peabody 
College of Vanderbilt University. She 
comes to MBC from the Vanderbilt 
Children's Hospital Development 
Office, where she served as a 
development assistant. Westhafer comes 
to MBC from the University of Virginia 
Law School Foundation, where she 
served as assistant to the director of 
alumni affairs. She earned her B.A. in 
communications from HoUins College. 

Trickle-Down Science: Dr. Lundy 
Pentz Brings Latest DNA 
Researcli Into the Classroom 

During the 1997 spring term, MBC 
Associate Professor of Biology Dr. Lundy 
Pentz became the first faculty member 
from an undergraduate college to 
participate in research at the 
Developmental Biology Center at The 
University of Virginia. As recipient of 
MBC's 1996-97 Karl F. and Patricia H. 
Menk Award for Faculty Support, Dr. 
Pentz spent the spring semester and May 
Term on sabbatical at the 
Developmental Biology Center. The 
pilot program evolved from the center's 
mission of including teaching faculty 
from undergraduate institutions in its 
ongoing research. 

According to experts in the field, 
science research budgets are being closely 
examined at many institutions nationwide. 
An intentional focus on public outreach 
helps researchers reconnect with the larger 
community, maintaining public support 
and thus governmental support. 

Dr. Pentz said, "1 will bring new 
research techniques from this sabbatical 
hack to my students at MBC. Eventually, 
even high school teachers and students 
will directly reap the benefits of this

research relationship." 

The trickle-down of knowledge started 
this summer, when Dr. Pentz returned to 
MBC to coordinate the 1997 Young 
Women in Science Program. Equipment 
and techniques garnered from Dr. Pentz's 
sabbatical research with DNA replication 
and developmental gene regulation were 
demonstrated to and used by the 3 5 science 
whizzes attending MBC's three-week, on- 
campus science program. 

Dr. Pentz noted, "I will substantially 
revise my developmental biology course 
as a result of this sabbatical. Developmental 
biology is a vital and currently active field. 
The 1996 Nobel prizes in medicine and 
physiology went to three developmental 
biologists. This fall, I will bring the latest 
in research to MBC's biology majors." 

Dr. Ariel Gomez, chief of Pediatric 
Nephrology and director of UVA's 
Developmental Biology Center, said, 
"The sabbatical opportunity for college 
and high school teachers is an important 
goal of the center and it supports our 
major objective of making science 
accessible to students and professors 
alike. It is a way to be in direct touch 
with the community, making ourselves 
available to encourage young minds to 
pursue a career in science. If this program 
is as successful as this pilot with Dr. 
Lundy Pentz suggests, we plan to extend 
it to other colleges and high schools." 

Dr. Pentz holds his Ph.D. from Johns 

Hopkins University and has served on 
the MBC faculty since 1980. He directs 
MBC's highly successful Young Women 
in Science Program, which is in its 
twelfth year. 

Private Colleges Pool Efforts To 
Pull In Prospectives 

Modeled after a highly successful 
Minnesota program, the Commonwealth's 
24 private colleges joined together to host 
the first Virginia Private Colleges Week, 
August 4 - 8. 

The weeklong event, spearheaded 
by the The Council for Independent 
Colleges in Virginia, featured college 
tours at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. daily on each 
campus, making it easy for students and 
their parents to visit a number of schools 
in any given area of the state. CICV 
President Robert Lambeth said, "The 
weeklong program was designed to show 
high school students the array of 
academic and extracurricular programs 
available at Virginia's private liberal 
arts colleges and universities. Some 
families think they cannot afford a 
private college, but if we can get them in 
to talk to us, they realize that with 
financial aid a private college education 
is do-able." 

An added bonus of Private Colleges 

Week was the offer of three admissions

Dr. Ken Keller, professor of history, published his essay "The Outlook of Rhinelanders 
on the Virginia Frontier" in Diversity and Accommodation — Essays on the Cultural 
Composition of the Virginia Frontier. The book was edited by Michael Puglisi and 
published this summer by the University of Tennessee Press. 

Master of Arts in Teaching Program Director Dr. Beth Roberts had a book chapter 
accepted for publication in Children Achieving: Instructional Practices in Early 
Literacy. Her chapter was titled "1 No EvrethENGe": Essential Skills in Early 
Literacy." The book will be published in 1998 by the International Reading 
Association of Newark, DE. 

Associate Professor of Philosophy Dr. Edward Scott had his article "Bardic Memory 
and Witness in the Poetry of Samuel Allen" accepted for publication in a book of 
critical essays about poets from the black arts movement. The book will be published 
in 1997 and will be edited by Joanne Gabbin. Dr. Scott also participated in the 
Chesapeake Regional Scholars seminar addressing the state of African-American 
studies. The seminar was held this summer at The University of Virginia.

application fee waivers for students 
who visited four or more schools during 
the week. Students were given a 
"passport" for the week, and those who 
had their passport stamped at four or 
more colleges received the fee waivers, 
a savings of up to $300. 

"Private colleges have for years 
shared the costs of sending recruiters 
to college fairs around the country and 
overseas," said Lambeth. "Private 
Colleges Week worked well because it 
brought the students and their families 
onto our campuses for a firsthand look. " 

MBC Dean of Admissions and 
Financial Aid Pat LeDonne said that 
54 families participated in Mary 
Baldwin's 10 campus tours offered 
during the week. "Our visitors came 
from seven states," she said, 
"including Virginia, North Carolina, 
Tennessee, Minnesota, Connecticut, 
Oklahoma and Maryland. I think we 
had great numbers for the first year. 
Last year during the same week, we 
had only eight students visit campus. 
I hope this is the first of many Virginia 
Private Colleges weeks, and I hope 
that the CICV will expand the 
program into two weeks so colleges 
can offer tours in June and August." 

Five for five: IVIBC Remains 
Among tlie Best in the South 
According to U.S. News 

For the fifth straight year, Mary Baldwin 
College was listed in the top five 
regionally-ranked liberal arts colleges 
in the South by U.S. News & World 
Report. The news magazine's 1997 guide 
to "America's Best Colleges" hit 
newsstands in August, and MBC ranked 
fourth out of 13 1 liberal arts colleges in 
the South. 

Only Berea College, Lyon College 
and Emory and Henry College ranked 
higher than Mary Baldwin. Officials 
at U.S. News said, "It is crucial to 
remember that schools separated by 
only a few places in the rankings are 
extremely close in academic quality." 

U.S. News & World Report assesses 
colleges using objective statistical 
criteria such as student selectivity, 
financial resources, faculty resources, 
retention rates, alumni satisfaction 
and academic reputation among 
college presidents, deans and 
admission directors. Mary Baldwin 
College's highest individual ranking

Gordon Hammock 

BY Dr. James D. Lott, dean of the college 

One of the last things Gordon Hammock did the morning of July 29, 
only a few hours before his sudden and tragic death from a heart 
attack, was to confer by telephone with the editor of The Mary Baldwin 
Magazine and arrange to fax a copy of the article which follows. 
Gordon and Irene Hammock, as they always do, had left Staunton for 
thesummerandreturnedtotheirhome in Huntington, NY, but Gordon 
was never really away from the college. Even when on "vacation," his 
thoughts were with Mary Baldwin and her students, and it is not 
surprising that he spent time that particular morning discussing final 
details about his article. 

I first met Gordon in 1986, not as a candidate for a faculty 
position, but as the father of a student, Elizabeth, Class of 1989. We 
had a wonderful conversation, the kind I love having with parents, full 
of praise for the college and obsen/ations about what a good 
experience Elizabeth was having as a student. I was able to say what 
an excellent citizen of the community Elizabeth was, and Gordon and 
I spent a few happy minutes smiling at each other. 

When a faculty position became available for fall 1987, a friend 
of Gordon's encouraged him to apply. Along with the rest of the search 
committee, I was impressed by his long and successful career with 
AT&T and by his commitment to education, his own and that of others. 
He had completed a master's degree through the AT&T executive 
program at Pace University and, while continuing his duties with 
AT&T, had taught at Pace as an adjunct faculty member for 11 years. 

Goracn was offered the position and accepted it, and from 
the beginning he made a difference. 

A veteran of the corporate world, he brought experience and 
practical insight, as well as a clear theoretical framework, to his 
discussions of management issues. An energetic and highly motivated 
man himself, he preached motivation and professional excellence. 
And as students responded to his personality, his wisdom and his 

clear concern for their futures, they were also able to meet the high 
standards he set for them. 

Over the 10 years of Gordon's work at iVIBC, he took on greater 
and greater responsibility for the ongoing life of the college. His 
colleagues elected him discipline chair and division coordinator, and 
he served as faculty representative to both the Endowment and 
Development Committees of the Board of Trustees. Just this past 
spring, the faculty elected him their representative to the board's 
Business and Finance Committee. Several years ago, in recognition 
of his contributions to the college, he was awarded the Bertie Wilson 
Murphy Distinguished Chair in Business Administration. 

We will miss him immensely. It is easy to say that someone is 
"irreplaceable," but in Gordon's case that is the fact. His incredible 
devotion to his students, his talents for organization andforteaching, 
his ability to take and to articulate an institutional view of issues — 
these are rare qualities. I will miss him because of his wise counsel 
and advice, his enthusiasm, and the pleasure he took in his job, his 
family, his students and his friends (among whom I was pleased to 
be numbered). 

As a teacher, Gordon was determined to bring the "real world" 
of business to his students, and to take them there. He was 
enthusiastic about designingand implementinga Business Leadership 
Lecture Series, which brought executives from the Federal Reserve 
Bank and The Conference Board to campus, and he and Irene 
together planned and executed annually a trip for students to the 
Hilton Head Ethics Symposium in the fall and to New York (to study 
international relations) or to Washington, DC, (to study business and 
society) in May Term. The article which follows shows the excitement 
Gordon himself felt overthese educational ventures off campus, and 
his words, describing this experience which he designed for his 
students, provide his most moving epitaph.

At 8:00 a.m. sharp on 
May 15, 15 students 
from my Business and 
Society class took off 
from Staunton for 
four days in 
Washington, DC. 
Why Washington? 

The Business and Society course 
concentrates on the relationship of 
business, pubhc pohcy and society at 
large. Increasing demands are being 
made upon businesses by society, whose 
will is expressed through legislation 
and enforcement. To understand this 
process, the course examines high 
profile issues in which stakeholders 
(private companies, consumers, media, 
politicians and regulatory bodies, 
employees and boards of directors ) hold 
a particular point of view and lobby for 
their position. The government, 
particularly the federal government, 
traditionally represents a different 

(public policy) point ofview and lobbies 
for its position through its agencies. 

In order to observe the process 
first-hand, it made sense to select a 
highly controversial issue and visit 
Washington to determine the 
position of various parties on that 
issue. We chose telecommunications. 
Few industries today, with the 
exception perhaps of tobacco, involve 
as many stakeholders. We looked 
especially at the in-fighting over 
implementation of Congress' 1996 
National Telecommunications Act, 
visiting private and government 
agencies who held differing positions. 

Imagine how surprised we were when 
the major implementation decisions 
(some call them landmark decisions) 
were handed down by the FCC on 
the Wednesday morning we were in

MBC Impacts Local Community 
In a Big Way 

Mary Baldwin's students, faculty, staff, 
parents and visitors boost the local 
economy by more than $25 million, 
according to the 1996-97 Community 
Impact Study conducted by Jacqui EUiott- 
Wonderley, MBC director of volunteers, 
and the MBC Institutional Research 
Office. The study showed that MBC's 
students, employees and 21,429 visitors 
spent an estimated $16,931,178 in 
Staunton, Waynesboro and Augusta 
County in 1996-97. MBC's constituency 
was also responsible for nearly $8.5 million 
in indirect spending, resulting in a total 
impact of $25,396,767. 

ElUott-Wonderley said that most 
universities only look at the economic 
impact on the local economy. "We wanted 
to spend time looking at more than just 
dollars spent." The Impact Study, 
conducted about every seven years, showed 
that MBC sponsored more than 1 00 public 
events in the area and that college 
employees and students contributed over 
12,000 hours of community service in the 
Shenandoah Valley. MBC employees also 
donated nearly $300,000 in charitable gifts 
in the valley. Data for the Impact Study 
came from surveys given to MBC students, 
faculty and staff. 

"We already know that the community 
is supportive of Mary Baldwin," said EUiott- 
Wonderley. "We're glad to see that this is 
also a two-way street. We feel good that 
we're making such a positive impact on 
the local area." 

ADP Teams with Roanoke 
Citizens to Form Higher 
Education Center 

Mary Baldwin College is part of a public- 
private team helping to establish a Higher 
Education Center in downtown Roanoke, 
VA. MBC President Dr. Cynthia H. Tyson 
joined a group of private Roanoke citizens, 
Virginia state officials and four other 
Virginia colleges to announce the plans 

for the center in August. Although the 
Mary Baldwin College campus is located 
over 100 miles away from Roanoke, MBC 
has been a major player in Roanoke's 
higher education for 13 years. Mary 
Baldwin's Roanoke Regional Adult Degree 
Program office, established in 1984, is 
popular among local residents who want 
to finish a degree started years ago, change 
career paths, or earn credentials leading to 
career advancement. 

According to Dan Dowdy, assistant 
professor of business administration and 
an advisor in the ADP Roanoke Regional 
Center, this team effort represents "broad 
community support for providing a Higher 
Education Center which delivers a 
spectrum of degrees in one central location. 
This is a great example of the public and 
private sector working together to deliver 
a much needed service." 

55-Year-Old William Wayt King 
Building Modernized for Students' 
Return to Campus 

Over 100 faculty, staff, students and 
community friends joined MBC President 
Dr. Cynthia H. Tyson to tour the newly 
renovated William Wayt King Building 
in August. Built to house a gym and 
swimming pool in 1 942, the King Building 
was renovated over the summer into an 
air-conditioned residential and conference 
facility. The King Building now houses 53 
students in 27 rooms during the school 
year, and the facility will expand MBC's 
ability to host programs, conferences and 
seminars throughout the year. 

Doenges Scholar Duo Packs One- 
Two Literary Punch 

MBC's Elizabeth Kirkpatrick Doenges 
Scholars for 1997-98, novelist Lee Smith 
and her husband, journalist Hal Crowther, 
will be on campus from November 17 to 
21 sharing their talents with students and 
faculty and presenting a public lecture. 

Lee Smith is widely regarded as one of 
the top chroniclers of the fictional South 
and has been referred to as "the bard of 
Appalachia." She has written 12 novels 
and two short story collections and has 

served as professor of creative writing at 
North Carolina State University since 

Hal Crowther has served as a staff 
writer at TIME and as an associate editor 
for Newsweek. He published a collection 
of his essays, Unarmed But Dangerous, 
through Longstreet Press in 1995. His 
syndicated column has been based at The 
Independent in Durham, NC, since 1989. 
Crowther and Smith live in Hillsborough, 
NC. They will return to campus during 
May Term for a series of lectures and 
public presentations. 

Public-Private Partnerships: MBC 
Offers Educational Services to 
Corporate World 

ADP Assistant Professor of Business 
Administration Dan Dowdy has been 
named director of corporate education for 
Mary Baldwin. During the 1997-98 term. 
Dowdy will conduct a feasibility study to 
determine how MBC can become more 
involved in helping businesses and 
organizations meet the educational and 
training needs of their employees. The 
goal of the corporate education venture is 
to make MBC resources available to enable 
adults to grow as continuous learners and 
to enable businesses to thrive as learning 
organizations. Dowdy will remain on the 
Adult Degree Program faculty in Roanoke 
while serving in this new capacity.

my first DEA job in New York City, and I 
shop at Talbots now." 

Ann Hayes is the CEO of Strang Hayes 
Consulting, Inc., a New York-based firm 
that specializes in investigating corporate 
espionage and other white collar crimes, 
helping businesses deal with drug abuse in 
the workplace, and providing security 
support to international clients.

but she is. In 1981, fresh out 
of Mary Baldwin College with 
a political science degree, 
South Carolina-born Hayes 
joined the police force in 
Roanoke, VA. 

"I was always interested 
in law. I took several pre-law 
courses at MBC, but decided 
against going back to school. I 
thought that becoming a 
police officer would get me in 
on the ground level of law 
enforcement, so 1 worked as a 
uniformed police officer for 
two years. 1 drove a patrol car, 
had a district and learned a 
lot. While 1 was on the Vice 
Squad in Roanoke, 1 worked 
with the federal Drug 
Enforcement Agency (DEA) . At that time, 
1983, the DEA was not a household name 
like it is now, but I liked that kind of 
work." So when some jobs opened up, she 

There were 400 open positions and 
over 40,000 applicants for those slots. 
Ann was admitted to the DEA Basic Agent 
Training School in Glynco, GA, and was 
the first woman to graduate at the top of 
her class. "After that 1 became a special 
agent and requested work in New York 
City. I had never been to New York 
before. I think the hardest part was living 
there on only $17,000 that first year!" 

In New York she worked with the 
DEA's Eastern District Conspiracy group 


IN College Magazine 

as an undercover street agent. After 
several years of this work, Hayes was 
infiltrating a group of drug dealers with 
mob connections when she learned that 
her cover had been blown. The DEA 
gave Hayes a choice: transfer out of New 
York or take an executive position. Hayes 
took the desk job. In 1989, she and a 
DEA colleague started Strang Hayes 
Consulting, Inc. 

"We started the business to help 
companies with employee problems," says 
Hayes. "Most negative issues in the 
workplace have to do with drug or alcohol 
problems. The business has evolved over 
time, and now we deal with a wide 
spectrum of corporate security needs." 

In her role as corporate educator, 
Hayes has designed programs to prevent 
and resolve workplace issues such as 
inventory loss, corruption, sexual 
harassment, workplace violence and 
workers' compensation fraud. 

Hayes has just returned from 
conducting a week of special training 
sessions for the New York Yankees 
baseball franchise. Says Hayes, "We 
worked with their minor league players, 
educating them on different topics, 
letting them know how to get help with 
problems before they get out of control. 

"I also recently worked with Pfizer, 
a company concerned about their 
female employees who ride the subway 
to work. Personal safety is a big issue." 

And of course, Strang Hayes still 
does security work for corporate clients 
at risk from international terrorism. They 
have even been asked to confidentially 
track down missing children for high 
profile executives and celebrities. 

From 9 to 5 Hayes operates a 
sophisticated dragnet, but after hours and 
on weekends she is a wife as well as mother 
to three step-daughters and a new baby 
boy named Sam. If that isn't hectic enough, 
her family lives in Pennsylvania. 

"My husband and I worked really 
hard to make this commuter marriage 
work," says Hayes. "Sam and I live in the 
city during the week. He wakes up at 6 
a.m. each morning, so I do, too. We go to 
Central Park or play for awhile in the 
mornings. His nanny arrives at 8:30 a.m.. 

and then 1 head to work. We have dinner 
and more playtime in the evenings. The 
week passes quickly. 

"Then on Friday Sam and I return to 
Pennsylvania and the farm. We rejoin 
the family, and I take care of goats and 
sheep and chickens and things. My 
husband and I always wish we had more 
time together, and that is a good feeling. 

"Throughout my career I have 
always been in a man's job," says Hayes. 
"I'm probably the only woman to 
graduate from Mary Baldwin and 
become a cop. But I am not a 'hear me 
roar' kind of woman. This career is 
about being realistic and taking skills 
and using them in a way that helps to 
advance me and my goals. 

"I think the independence I achieved 
while at Mary Baldwin has been helpful," 
says former Student Government 
Association president Hayes. "The way 

we lived at Mary Baldwin helped cement 
my personal sense of integrity." 

She adds, "One of my step-daughters' 
friends is looking seriously at Mary 
Baldwin, and I am proud of that. 1 like to 
think that she sees me as a role model and 
wants what Mary Baldwin College gave to 
me for herself." 

Hayes is currently a consultant to 
television producers creating a show 
centered around a female DEA agent. 
"They want to create a woman detective 
role that is realistic, not the stereotypical 
glamour-type," says Hayes. 

The producers want realism — like a 
woman detective with four kids and a 
commuter marriage who divides her time 
between raising sheep and raising Cain for

as usual.

A TERRIBLE STORM onjune 15, 1844, 
made attendance sparse at the 
cornerstone laying ceremony for Augusta 
Female Seminary's first permanent 
building. The ceremony took place 
anyway in the Presbyterian Church* 
whose congregation had donated an 
adjoining piece of land for the building. 

The Staunton Spectator reported that 
the following items were placed in the 
cornerstone by the Reverend Francis 
McFarland, president of the Board of 
Trustees for the school: "The Staunton 
Spectator, newspaper of the week; a 
copper plate with a record of the 
ceremony; a Record of the Trustees, 
Officers, and Pupils, with the names of 
the Architect, Stonecutter, Mason, and 
Carpenter; the Holy Bible, enclosed in 
oil silk, with the superscription 'The 
only Rule of Faith, and the First 
Textbook of the Augusta Female 
Seminary.'" Unfortunately for historians, 
the newspaper did not report the names 
of the architect, stonecutter, mason or 

When construction of the Main 
Building (now known as the 
Administration Building) began in 1 844, 
the Stuart Addition neighborhood where 
the school is located was fairly young. 
The area had developed on steep land 
donated to the town by Judge Archibald 
Stuart in 1803. At the time, the 
neighborhood contained one mansion, 
known as "Hill Top" (now used as a 
residence hall for Mary Baldwin College ) , 
and numerous frame and brick houses 
much more modest in size. 

* This church was located on Frederick Street next to where 
the Administration Building is today. It was not known as 
the First Presbyterian Church until the establishment of an 
additional Presbyterian congregation in 1875. 

The Staunton Academy was remodeled in 
1855 to look like the Main Building of 
Augusta Female Seminary, 

Early views of Staunton, even those 
as late as the 1850s, show that most of 
the existing houses were located in low- 
lying areas with few on hilltops. This 
was due to the need for water, which was 
supplied primarily by public water pumps 
scattered about town in low-lying areas. 
Water had to be transported by buckets 
from these pumps to homes, and for most 
of the Stuart Addition neighborhood, 
that meant climbing some of the 
steepest hills in Staunton. 


In 1844, Staunton was already 
well on its way toward becoming 
an educational center. The 
Staunton Academy had been 
established in 1792 as one of the 
first private boys' schools in the 
Shenandoah Valley. The Virginia 
School for the Deaf and Blind, one of 
the earliest such institutions of its kind 
in the nation, was founded in 1839. The 
Virginia Female Seminary (now known 
as Stuart Hall School) opened in 1844- 
There were other schools as well, 
including the long-gone Wesleyan 
Female Institute and The Staunton 
Female Seminary. 

The architecture of ancient Greece 
served as the inspiration for the design 
of the Main Building. The Greek Revival 
style, which was sweeping the country at 
the time, had grown out of the classical 
tradition of architecture popularized in 
Virginia by the work of Thomas Jefferson. 

Although Jefferson favored the Ties With The Stauntoii Academy 

architecture of ancient Rome over that 

of Greece, the Greek Revival style took A number of ties existed between 

precedence in Virginia during the 1840s the Augusta Female Seminary and The 

and 1850s. Robert Mills, who served as a Staunton Academy, an all-male school 

draftsman for Monticello, and several located nearby at the corner of New and 

contractors who worked for Jefferson on Academy Streets. Several of the trustees, 

the construction of The University of principals and teachers at The Staunton 

Virginia helped to popularize the revival Academy were connected with either 

ofGreek and Roman architectural styles, the Presbyterian Church and/or with 

Though built in the Greek Revival style, the Augusta Female Seminary, which 

the Main Building for the Augusta was started by the church. The Waddell 

Female Seminary followed the family, active members of the 

Jeffersonian tradition of using classically Presbyterian Church, were extremely

Building was a temple 
form brick structure faced with a two- 
story portico supported by four Doric 
columns. Like other similar buildings of 
the era, the columns were constructed of 
brick, then stuccoed to resemble stone. 
The building's location on the slope of a 
steep hillside added to the desired 
impression of an ancient Greek temple 
perched on an acropolis. The new 
building's main room on the first floor 
was a lecture room, and use of the space 
was shared between the school and the 
neighboring Presbyterian Church. There 
were no living quarters for faculty or 
students in this building. 



»^5W^ V 

In December 1912, President-elect 
Woodrow Wilson addressed a crowd from 
the front portico of the Main Building 

involved with The Staunton Academy. 
James G. Waddell was a joint principal 
of the Academy during the early 19th 
century, and Lyttleton Waddell, Sr. 
began service as joint principal of the 
school beginning in 1833, remaining for 
more than 20 years. Rev. Joseph Smith, 
pastor of Staunton's Presbyterian 
Church from 1826 to 1832, served as 
principal of The Staunton Academy. 

Perhaps due to these ties. The 
Staunton Academy was remodeled in 
1855 in a fashion which mimicked the 
original building of the Augusta Female 
Seminary. It is also possible that the 
same architect may have worked on both 
buildings, or that some of the 

architectural drawings for the Seminary 
may have been shared with the 
Academy. In any case, the result of the 
remodeling of the Staunton Academy 
Building created a building which looked 
remarkably similar to the Main Building 
of the Seminary as it was originally built 
(before the wings were added during the 
1854-1857 period). It is interesting to 
note that every major school built during 
the first half of the 19th century in 
Staunton was designed in the Greek 
Revival style, a precedent established in 
Staunton by the Main Building of the 
Augusta Female Seminary. 

Dabney Cosby was a builder and 
brick manufacturer in Staunton who 
later became a well-known architect. 
Cosby owned a great deal of real estate 
in Staunton, including the property on 
which the Main Building of Mary 
Baldwin College now stands. He 
purchased the land in 1818 just after the 
Presbyterian Church had been 
completed on the adjoining lot, and he 
may well have designed the church. 
Church records say that "a high fence 
within a few yards of the church formed 
the western boundary of the lot. The 
space between the church and New 
Street, used for some years as a brick- 
yard, was not enclosed till 1841." Since 
Cosby owned and operated a brickyard 
in Staunton, this may have been the 
location of his principal business 
enterprise. The church purchased this 
land, which was described as "previously 
rugged and unsightly." Given all these 
connections, there is a good possibility 
that Dabney Cosby was the architect of 
the Main Building. 

Cosby later moved away from 
Staunton, but continued to own property ,i 
in the Stuart Addition neighborhodd 
for many years and periodically returned 
to visit. During his extremely productive i 
career, Cosby designed and constructed 
numerous schools, public buildings and 
houses throughout Virginia and Norths 

On August 21, 1852, the' 
congregation of the Presbyterian Church i 
approved a request by the Seminary toi 
extend their building "providing such! 
addition does not extend the building' 
more than twenty five feet in the 
direction of the Church." Construction 
of the wings took place between 1854 
and 1857, after many delays caused by a 
lack of adequate funding. The twc 
flanking wings with their pedimentec 
gable-ends dramatically changed the 
facade, making it look less like a twin tc ,

leadership of the school's principal. Mar

The Main Building and the sloping 
lillside in front were transformed by 
Vliss Baldwin beginning around 1870. 
Trees were planted and cast iron urns 
illcd with flowers were placed along 
irick walkways. A pair of tiered 
(Hintains with goldfish and aquatic 
slants flanked the entrance walk. A 
.cciind story walkway extended across

Throughout the years, these dogs have 
)een given a variety of names by the 
tudent body, from "Caesar and 
'ompey" to the present names of "Ham 
ind Jam." At some point, "Ham" and 
Jam" were painted, probably to protect

;lements. Sometime during the 1940s, 
I couple of mischievous boys hauled off 
jne of the dogs and stuffed the hollow 
nterior with explosives, leading to the 
lestruction of the dog. Using the 

surviving terra cotta dog as a model,

VA, cast replacements for both dogs 
out of cast iron.

was constructed behind the Main

gallery was built which joined the two 

Historic Events 

Two of the most significant events 
in the history of Mary Baldwin College 
have taken place from the Greek 
Revival style front portico of the Main 
Building. Staunton's favorite son. 
President-elect Woodrow Wilson, gave 
an address on this site in 
December of 1912. His 
father had served as pastor 
of the Presbyterian Church 
while it stood next door, and 
the future president had 
been baptized there. On 
October 2 1 , 1960, President 
Dwight D. Eisenhower, 
whose mother was from 
Augusta County, also spoke to the 
citizens of Staunton from this portico. 
If the cornerstone could only be 
located so that its contents could 
"speak," or if "Ham" and "Jam" could 
only talk to us about the time they have 
spent guarding the entrance — what 
more might we learn ? What we do know 
is that from the very beginning, the 
Augusta Female Seminary was breaking 
new ground in the area of education for 
women. We also know that the design 
for the Main Building served as the 
inspiration for the design for other 
schools in Staunton. We do not know 
where many of the school's early 
records are. We do not know with 
certainty the names of the Main 
Building's architect, stone cutter, mason 
or carpenter. We are still searching for 
the cornerstone. So, there 
are still secrets to be 
discovered about the 
school and its first 
permanent building, 
which was such 
a trendsetter 
when it was 
more than 150 
years ago. 

Ham and Jam Hunker Down for 

A $10 million gift from an anonymous donor has 
allowed Mary Baldwin to begin preservation, 
rehabilitation and modernization of two of the 
oldest, most historically significant buildings on 
campus, the Administration Building and 
McClung Hall. 

The Administration Building houses the 
offices of the president, dean of the college, dean 
of students, and dean of admissions and financial 
aid. McClung Hall is attached to the north side of 
Administration and connected by a wide two-story 
passageway. Throughout most of Its existence, 
McClung has served a mixed use as dormitory 
and office space. 

Since little documentation of the two 
buildings exists, architects conducted extensive 
on-site investigations into their structural 
conditions before drawing up plans. This Included 
cutting holes In finished surfaces along with core 
sampling and testing of existing materials. 

The Administration Building is in need of 
structural repair as well as rehabilitation. The 
project will stabilize the building, replace the 
mechanical and electrical systems, and provide 
new paint and floor coverings. The heating 
system will be replaced, and the existing stairs 
at the west end of the building will be reworked 
for use as exit stairs. According to the architect, 
Philip Renfrew, "The primary goal and one of the 
most significant challenges of the project is to 
maintain and expand vital college functions 
within the historic framework. We want to 
continue the building's use as the first point of 
contact with visitors, prospective students, and 
families, to retain Its function as the 'front door' 
for the campus." 

Work on McClung Hall will include 
Installation of additional stairs and a fire wall to 
meet fire code requirements; complete 
replacement of electrical, heating, and plumbing 
systems. Including addition of air conditioning; 
renovation of bathrooms to current standards; 
major repair of Interior walls; and replacement of 
doors, windows, frames, trim and Interior finishes. 

A portion of the $10 million gift has been 
set aside to cover 50 percent of the $3.75 million 
cost of the project. The balance of the funding Is 
being raised from alumnae and friends of the 
college, corporations and foundations. The Mary 
Morton Parsons Foundation of Richmond, VA, is 
one of the foundations that has responded to the 
donor's challenge, providing a grant of $300,000 
toward the project. 

Work on the buildings began In August and 
Is expected to be completed In the summer of 

1998. The college plans to formally 
rededicate the Administration Building 
after the modernization and 

preservation project is complete.

What is public but private? What is 
mi litary but not military ? What is part of 
Mary Baldwin's traditional program and 
apart from it? 

VWIL - the Virginia Women's 
Institute for Leadership. Yes, it is still 
going, and yes! it is going strong. Forty- 
five new "nulls" arrived on August 18 to 
try on jackets and moan over baggy 
uniform pants. By comparison, VMl 
attracted 30 freshmen women. 

VWIL is not an easy program. 
Admissions reps say this to interested 
women right up front. They want to 
make sure applicants know what they're 
getting in for. They will be prepared as 
leaders in a variety of fields. This will 
involve being stretched physically and 
academically. They will have to learn to 
micro-manage their time. They will 
struggle to fit in all their requirements in 
four years. They will have to take on 
challenges and push themselves beyond 
what they thought possible. And still 
they come. 

Only three applicants this year 
applied to both VWIL and VMI. They 
all chose VWIL. It's a style thing. MBC 
President Cynthia H. Tyson told VWIL 
parents, "This is a program designed by 
women for women. It is unique, not like 
leadership programs at any other colleges, 
not like programs at any military 
colleges." Col. Al Moyer from the Air 
Force attachment at VMI added, "It is 
leadership training that is very different 
from VMI." While VMI and VWIL 
cooperate in many ways and have 
maintained an excellent relationship, 
the two programs do attract different 
kinds of students. 

"VMI breaks students down and then 
builds them up, "said VWIL junior Sherri 
Sharpe after observing both programs 
over the past two years. "VWIL starts 
from where students are and helps them 
continue to grow." 

"We are not tied to tradition and can 
look at a variety of ways of developing 
leaders and a variety of styles and skills that 
experts believe will be needed in the future," 
said VWIL Director Brcnda Bryant. 

"We develop the whole person. We 
encourage students to remove the limits 
so there's an encouragement to be what 
you want to be, a value in being risk 
takers, experimenting. That is not VMI. 
They build leadership skills, but not in 
the same way we do. They would not say 
they encourage people to take risks, to 
push, to challenge social convention. 
That's us! We're the opposite — defy 
convention, do it your way, don't let 
tradition dictate who you're going to be. 
Start new traditions on your own." 

Nothing has come easy for VWIL. It 
has faced an uphill battle from its 
beginning when it set out in 1995 to be 
a single-sex, publicly funded leadership 
program that offered a legal alternative 
to a coed VMI. After a protracted court 
battle, the Supreme Court ruled in 1996 
that an alternative program for women 
was not acceptable: VMI must go coed. 

In the end, this has proved a happy 
solution for VWIL, giving it the freedom 
to continue developing in its own way 
without legal strictures. It does mean, 
though, that the college will have to 
seek alternative sources of funding, since 
VMI Foundation support of $273,125 
per year will end in 1999. On the other 
hand, Mary Baldwin's contract with the 
Commonwealth of Virginia continues. 
This year there is a subsidy of $7,464 for 
each state resident in the program. 

A committee made up of seven 
MBC faculty and staff members and a 
student designed the program, basing 
it on the latest research on leadership 
development and single-sex education 
for women. They envisioned a holistic 
program with four parts: academic, 
physical education, military (ROTC), 
and co-curricular. The academic part 
includes the standard liberal arts 
requirements, plus additional 
requirements in math, lab sciences, 
foreign languages, and computers. It 
also includes four leadership courses: 
leadership communications; history and 
theories of leadership; ethics, 
community, and leadership; and a 
seminar on the practice of leadership. 

The program is designed to begin for 
freshmen in August with three days of 
wilderness training focused on building 
teamwork and self-confidence. 

According to Bryant, VWIL has 
continued to be true to its original design 
with the primary changes being additions 
to the curriculum. Because students tend 
to latch on to military drill and uniforms 
as a form of identity, Bryant feels that 
part of her job is to keep the military in 
balance. "The program has a tendency 
to gravitate toward things military. I'm a 
more moderating influence on that. My 
job is to keep a bigger picture, to make 
sure it is a multi-dimensional program." 

Why include the military at all, 
especially now that VWIL is free from 
court scrutiny? Bryant said, "In order to 
really make this a comprehensive 
leadership program, you need an 
experiential element that includes a 
number of things. The military 
component is a strong one: lots of hands 
on, lots of action, lots of getting out 
there and doing it. It is excellent 
preparation for students who choose 
military careers, but also excellent 
leadership preparation for all women 
regardless of career choice." 

Junior Jennifer Vergne said she thinks 
ROTC contributes a great deal to the 
program. It teaches the chain of 
command and discipline, as well as 
stressing academics. It also provides many 
opportunities to practice leadership. 

Irene Covert from Yorktown, VA, 
whose husband recently retired from the 
Army, watched as her daughter Vanessa 
tried on hats on her first morning at the 
college. Too small, too large. Vanessa is 
their first child to go off to college. They 
like the program because it offers the 
benefits of the military without having 
to attend an all-military school. Vanessa 
said, "I wanted a program that would 
help instill discipline and structure. I do 
better with my academics if everything is 
in place." She received information about 
VWIL in the mail, then visited overnight. 
The camaraderie among the students 
was what impressed her the most. 

Tut Mary Baldwin Coi.i.egf. MAOAzrNE 


On the nulls' first day at MBC, Dean 
James Lott told parents, "Your daughters 
are probably going to say they're stretched, 
but we offer a tremendous amount of 
support and advice and nurturing. Each 
student has a faculty advisor and a peer 
advisor. VWIL is an extension of the 
mission Mary Baldwin has always had to 
prepare women leaders, but VWIL 
heightens and intensifies that mission." 

VWIL parents will meet three more 
times during the year to hear updates 
and discuss concerns. "This is our chance 

to work with you as part of the team 
working with your daughters," Bryant 
told them. 

VWIL students choose a major just 
like any other Mary Baldwin student. 
Jennifer Vergne's is political science. 
She wants a nonmilitary career and is 
considering law school. She likes the 
challenges in the program. "I think I will 
be prepared for whatever job I end up 
with," she said. "I've had a lot more 
leadership opportunities than my friends 
outside the program, like holding rank 

in the Corps of Cadets and being 
responsible for public relations for VWIL, 
being a squad leader, and being a platoon 
sergeant. I've also been on the Conduct 
Council." The toughest part of the 
program has been fitting in all the 
academic requirements. This semester 
she is taking 21 credit hours — two 
political science courses, plus American 
Congress, International Affairs, 
psychology, a leadership course, and 
Army ROTC. 

There has been discussion of 
lightening the academic requirements, 
for instance doing away with the calculus 
requirement; but faculty have opposed 
this, contending that academic rigor is 
part of what the program is. They say 
compromise would mean losing the 
specialness of the program. 

The founding class, now juniors, 
represents a variety of disciplines, but most 
are in nontraditional fields for women: 
science, math, business, politics. Eight plan 
to commission as officers in the military; the 
other 17 want nonmilitary careers. Bryant 
said, "The best thing about VWIL is the 
students who are in it. They're high energy 
and fun and challenging in all sorts of ways. 
They have an enthusiasm about life that 
makes being around them very exciting. 
They make it fun. Even their problems. 
They learn so much from engaging their 
problems. That's what makes me committed 
to the program. They are the program." 

The students' third day at the college 
brings a steady, drenching rain. Vanessa 
has found a hat, but it rides on her ears, 
and it will be six weeks before the right 
size comes in. Neither this nor the rain 
bring her spirits down, though. She and 
the other 44 nulls are preparing to take 
off for their wilderness training in the 
Allegheny Mountains — hiking, 
rappelling, kayaking, ropes courses; 
sweat, blisters, aching muscles, lousy food. 
This is what these VWIL students asked 
for; this is what they want. They're ready.

The Annual Report 


The Young Alumnae Program 

The Young Alumnae Program 
was established in 1994 in an 
effort to increase Annual Fund 
participation in the four most 
recently graduated classes. With 
giving clubs suited to a recent 
graduate's budget and a strong 
emphasis on participation at 
any level, the Young Alumnae 
Program has involved more 
young alumnae than ever in the 
Annual Fund. Together, the 
classes of 1993, 1994, 1995 and 
1996 had an average participation 
rate of 29* and gave a total of 
^4,441 to the Annual Fund.

In 1996-97, V,725 was raised through the ADP Loyalty Fund to support 
MBC's Adult Degree Program students with scholarships. ADP students 
know better than anyone how difficult it is to balance the responsibilities of 
work, family and school. They also know how much it means when others 
reach out to help. Thanks to the loyalty of ADP alumni, faculty and others, 
our current ADP students have the benefit of merit-based support.

the company addressed the class. Subjects 
covered included public affairs, 
Congressional affairs, government plans 
and programs, international affairs, legal 
affairs, information systems and 
administration. Vice President Whitney 
Hatch provided an overview before we 
discussed each of the eight areas. 

At present, GTE is the largest U.S.- 
based local exchange company and is 
also one of the leading providers of 
cellular service and aircraft-passenger 
telecommunications. GTE's Telephone 
Operations group operates in 28 states, 
in British Columbia and Quebec, and 
in the Dominican Republic and 
Venezuela. This breadth of service area 
gives them a unique position on how 
the 1996 Telecommunications Act 
should be implemented. 

Monday evening Mary Morrison, a 
1995 MBC graduate and a member of 
President Clinton's scheduling team, 
arranged for a special tour of the White 
House West Wing. The tour included 
a visit to the Oval Office of the 
President, the Cabinet Meeting Room, 
and the White House Press Room. 
Following the tour, we all trekked to 
Georgetown for dinner at Clyde's. 
Finally, tired but exhilarated, we 
walked back to the hotel. 

THE MAY 17, 1997 

1. Altered the way access charges are 
paid by long distance carriers to local 
telephone companies. 

2. Provided support for the information 
highway (education and library 

3. Continued to provide a Universal 
Service Fund to assure basic lifeline 
services for the less fortunate and to 
assure rural communities would 
continue to receive long distance 
service at affordable rates. 

Tuesday, IVIay 16 

Tuesday morning, we met in the 
hotel lobby to walk to NYNEX for our 
next meeting. NYNEX is the local 
telephone company for New York, 
Massachusetts, Rhode Island, 
Vermont, New Hampshire and 
Maine. It is currently in the process of 
merging with Bell Atlantic, which serves 
Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, 
Virginia and West Virginia. When the 
merger is completed, the combined new 
company will consist of 11 mid- Atlantic 
and northeastern states. 

Don Evans, vice president of 
federal regulatory affairs, was our host 

for the morning. While we enjoyed 
coffee and rolls, Mr. Evans succinctly 
outlined the NYNEX expectations for 
the Telecommunications Act of 1996 
and the pending FCC decision. While 
NYNEX expected changes in the way 
telecommunications services were 
delivered and priced, they naturally 
hoped to minimize any negative impact 
on local telephone companies. 

In addition to the 

telecommunications act, Mr. Evans 
also discussed the pending NYNEX/ 
Bell Atlantic merger and explained 
the dual function of the Government 
Affairs office: education and 
advocacy. Advocacy is important, he 
explained, but education of public 
officials is fundamental to good 
advocacy. We concluded the morning 
meeting with an excellent lunch 
provided by NYNEX. 

Tuesday afternoon, we met 
with the staff of the Federal 
Communications Commission (FCC) 
beginning at 2:00. At this juncture, 
we had already heard from two 
stakeholders (GTE and NYNEX) and 
were prepared for a change from 
private industry viewpoints to 
government perspectives. R.L. Smith 
arranged for the FCC briefing, which 
included six speakers who covered 
such topics as universal service and 
access issues. The FCC was grappling 
with how to ensure universal access 
from cellular phones, regardless of a 
caller's location. The staff pointed 
out that in many instances customers 
cannot obtain service in remote 
areas. At the same time, safety is 
often cited as one of the principal 
reasons customers subscribe to 
cellular service. The class discovered 
that this is not a problem with a 
simple solution, particularly with the 
number of cellular providers 
throughout the country.

Wednesday, May 17 

On Wednesday morning, we took a 
break from telecommunications issues 
by visiting the Equal Employment 
Opportunities Commission (EEOC), 
where Tulio Diaz, acting director of the 
Washington office, was our host. Diaz 
explained that discrimination 
involving race, sex and age are the 
primary issues the commission 
addresses. The EEOC oversees the 
administration and implementation of 
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the 
Equal Pay Act, the Age 
Discrimination in Employment Act, 
the Vocational Rehabilitation Act 
and the Americans with Disabilities 
Act. Diaz said that complaints of 
sexual harassment rose significantly 
following the Clarence Thomas 
hearings, and these complaints still 
represent a large number of the cases 
the commission addresses. 

After completing our discussion with 
the EEOC, we proceeded to AT&T for 

a hospitality lunch and afternoon 
briefing. This meeting could not have 
been timed better. The FCC had just 
ruled in the morning on implementation 
issues regarding the 1996 
Telecommunications Act, and the FCC 
findings were in many respects 
consistent with AT&T's 

recommendations. AT&T had been 
lobbying for lower access charges (long 
distance connections to the local 
networks) in return for lower long 
distance rates. They had argued that the 
ultimate beneficiaries of the FCC 
changes would be customers. 

AT&T's student briefing included, 
among other things, information on 
the Bell companies' entry into the 
long distance market and internships 
in the Senate. The internship 
information was especially helpful to 
the students. They were also impressed 
by the current positions and 
backgrounds of the four women 
conducting the briefing: three directors 
and one vice president of AT&T. 

Following the AT&T briefing, we 
proceeded to the Senate Gallery and 
observed a debate over the methods used 
to take the census every 10 years. The 
Census Bureau has said that, despite the 
fact that the 1990 census was the most 
expensive in history, it failed to count 10 
million people and counted six million 
more twice. It was clear from the limited 
debate we heard on the Senate floor that 
the issue is not likely to be resolved 

Thursday, May 18 

Early on Thursday morning, students 
took the standard White House tour. 
Compared to the special tour provided by 
Mary Morrison, this tour was aslight letdown, 
but nevertheless interesting. After this we 
reluctantly packed up for the return trip to 
Staunton. EXiring our first class meeting 
back at Mary Baldwin, students universally 
agreed that the Washington trip had been 
jam-packed with great cultural and 
educational experiences. 

New Technology on Campus Sparks Need for Professional Training 

With the upgrade of computer 
technology on campus comes the 
need for more extensive computer 
training for MBC employees. Director 
of Instructional Technology Scott 
Harlow has accepted the challenge 
of bringing faculty and staff up-to- 

Appointed in July , Harlow earned 
his B.A. from Hope College and his 
M.B.A. from James Madison 
University. Before coming to Mary 
Baldwin he worked as a computer 
trainer and administrator for Blue 
Ridge Community College. 

Harlow has found that with most 
campus offices receiving computer 
upgrades, there is a huge demand for 
introductory level software training. 
Two independent trainers have been 

hired to help meet training demands." 
"We have a training lab in Wenger 
Hall with nine computer terminals," 
says Harlow. This small class size 
offers individualized attention to each 
faculty or staff member." 

In addition to instructional 
technology position, Harlow is also 
teaching MBC students enrolled in 
Computer Science 100 -Introduction 
to Computer Technology during the 
fall semester. He is filling in for 
Assistant Professor of Computer 
Science Bill Winter, who is on 

"It gives me the opportunity to 
practice what I preach," says Harlow. 
"From basic Powerpoint to testing 
new projection systems, the CSIOO 
class has been a great testing ground."

Seminary at the request of the board of trustees in appreciation of her "valuable service and 
unparalleled success." 

The inscription on Miss Baldwin's gravestone reads, "This woman was full of good works 
and almsdeeds which she did. Principal during 34 years of the seminary, which is now called 
by her name. This also that she hath done be spoken of for a memorial of her."

The MBC "Daisy" Chain 

By Crista Ca 
associate vk 


Conni Atkins '72 , Kit Collins 
and Dr. James Lott in the 1974 
production of Love is a Daisy. 

Tracing all the Mary Baldwin connections to the many productions of 
Margaret Collins' play Love is a Daisy — a comedy of love and identity set 
in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia — can be harder than figuring out 
the relationships between the various degrees of cousins at an old-time 
family reunion. It gets a little easier if you focus just on the three 
productions of the play at Oak Grove Theater, the outdoor theatre 
founded in 1953 by Margaret and Fletcher Collins (MBC professor of 
theatre 1946-1977). 
But not much. 

Daisy debuted at the Oak Grove Theater in 1 955 . That first production 
was directed by Fletcher and starred then-Mary Baldwin students Barbara 
Allan Hite '58 as Ann and Jane Lucke 
'58 as Barbara (a role later to be renamed 
Susan). Patty Parke Gibian '56, 
Claiborne Dohs Elder '58 and Wini 
Boggs Myrick '54 were involved 
backstage, and the cast included 
Margaret's sister Kay Bart and the 
Collins' son Brandon. 

In 1974, after 42 productions in 20 
years, Daisy returned to the Oak Grove 
stage. This time Aurelia Crawford '74 
and Conni Atkins '72 played Ann and 
Susan, and Bette Allan Collins '61 
played Kelly — the role Conni was to 
play 23 years later. Dick Johnson, who 
would later marry Susan Massie Johnson 
'67, was technical director; and Kit 
Collins, another son of Fletcher and 

Margaret, played the role of Jess. And a young professor of English at Mary 
Baldwin College named Jim Lott played the role of Dr. Spivey, an 
academic with perhaps more than an academic's interest in love as a topic 

of investigation. 

Conni Atkins '72 
returned to Staunton 
temporarily last summer to 
direct and star in the third 
Oak Grove production of 
Love is a Daisy. Dr. James 
Lott, now dean of the 
college at MBC, reprised 
the role of Dr. Spivey. 
Morgan Alberts '99, a 
current MBC student who 
has graced the MBC stage 
in several productions, 
starred as Susan. Brandon 
Collins — Jess in the 1955 
production — is now married to Celia Flow Collins '61, whose daughter 
Lisa EUer starred as Ann in the 1997 production. Dorene Fisher '89 ADP 
designed the costumes. MBC Adjunct Instructor of Theatre Rick Seyford 
designed the sound and music. Jennifer Langer '99 ran the sound. Sarah 
Francisco '97 PEG and Martha Gates '78 assisted backstage, and Bette 
Collins served as a consultant to the director. 

As noted by Fletcher Collins in the program notes for the 1974 
revival. Love is a Daisy is the most widely produced of Margaret Collins' 13 
plays. It has seen 50-some productions in locations ranging from Virginia, 
Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Louisiana to the Edinburgh Festival 
Fringe in Scotland. He also noted that Conni Atkins was "generously 
volunteering from Key West" and expressed the hope that "the next 
director in 2009(?), will not travel as far and will do as well."

The Mary Baldwin College Magazi 

Finding the Money for College in 1938 

by Betty Bailey Hall '42 x '39 0/ Austin, TX 

I grew up in Oklahoma City and was a senior in high school during the 
1937-38 term. The country was just emerging from The Great 
Depression and I knew it was going to be a problem to find the finances 
for me to go to Mary Baldwin College after graduation. 1 had always 
wanted to go away to a girls' school and two of my friends had recently 
attended Mary Baldwin as freshmen. They were glowing in their 
accounts of their experiences and my parents and I focused our sights 
there. Taking into account the transportation costs, room and board, 
tuition, books and cloths, we decided it could be done for $1,000. 

We completed the forms for application to enter as a freshman the 
next fall. The college offered a $250 scholarship and I took the IQ test 
required. It was probably very similar to the SAT taken by high school 
students today. I was the only one taking the test in our high school, 
sitting in a corner of the vice principal's office for the two hours 1 was 
given to complete it. Six weeks later, I was notified that I would be 
awarded the scholarship and had the honor of being listed as a 
scholarship winner in my graduation program. Scholarships were 
unusual in those days, and I was very pleased to be a recipient. 

My father was a doctor and during the depression doctor bills were 
the last ones that were paid. He had to borrow against his insurance 
a few years earlier when my older sister went away to college, and that 
resource was no longer available. It was determined that 1 should try 
and get a job at the college and inquiries were made to the 
Administration Office. The National Youth Administration (NYA) 
was a new federal program to encourage college attendance and papers 
were sent to my parents for them to complete. I still have the forms. 
There was one statement that declared that the student would not be 
able to attend college without this financial help. My father decided 
that this was not the case and so he declined to sign the papers. 
However, when I reached Mary Baldwin, I was given an opportunity 
to be a lab assistant for Mr. Trout, a chemistry professor. I had taken 
a year of chemistry in high school and in the summers 1 had worked 
in my father's medical laboratory in the hospital, so I was somewhat 
familiar with the equipment and procedures. Of course, I had only the 
very basic responsibility of making up standard solutions and generally 
keeping the lab clean and neat. Mr. Trout was very kind and helpful 
in directing me in my work. The pay wasn't very much, but my needs 
were small and what 1 gained in the experience of working with Mr. 
Trout was much more valuable than the paycheck. 

1 will always be grateful to Mary Baldwin for the opportunity 1 had 
to spend my freshman year there and 1 will always be proud of the way 
the college has continued to grow in stature to be among the best 
women's colleges in the country.

Associate Professor of English Rick Plant was busy with a variety of writing 
projects during his fall J 996 sabbatical. The novella he worked on, Deaths 
by Drowning, will be published by Texas Review Press this winter. He also 
wrote a series of "autobiographical oddities , " which he has titled Worker's 
Comp: a Book of Hours. He comments, "I guess these pieces arose , in part, 
as 'tenure therapy': I think I felt an impulse to document the fact (maybe for 
my kids) that I wasn't born behind a lectern." 


I try to keep a white shirt clean for when I get the call. Nine a.m. on 
Tuesday morning, 7:30 p.m. on a Sunday: "Can you do a store tomorrow 
night?" Most times, it's "Yes." This makes it somewhat difficult to plan 
your days — for me, vacation days — but part of me thinks, this is how 
a job should be: somebody picks your name off of the list and calls you 
on the phone. They say, we need you. Can you work? 

We come together in the comer of a parking lot, sitting in our own 
closed, smoking cars, waitingfor the RGIS van. When it pulls in, we climb 
aboard. Some faces look familiar, others new, each crew is temporary 
as a posse. In silence, we are driven to a supermarket, a discount store, 
a pharmacy. There the supervisor issues our equipment. I strap the 
black box on my belt. Holster-high it rides my hips. Another box fits 
in the pocket of my shirt. Most of us are in our 20s. We passed an 
interview, a math test, and a training session just to get here. We like 
to think ourselves (we college students, housewives, second jobbers) 
as the inventory experts, retail specialists, outside consultants. 
Equipped, we file inside the store, scoping out its size and layout. A 
manager will show us where to stow our coats and purses. Then the 
supervisor takes us to our stations. 

Canned vegetables. Paper goods. Ladies' hosiery. Notions. This is 
where the job begins. Packaged hair-bobs. Sixty-five times 17 — my 
fingers tap the calculator keys. I mumble items' total worth into the tape 
recorder on my breast. Plastic combs. $1.49 times nine. This is micro- 
economics. I punch it, call it, tag it, inching down the aisle. If the store 
is open, customers will stroll behind my back, unseen. If closed, nobody 
crosses through my station but a stock boy, leaving me a wide, respectful, 
dry patch with his mop. I'm in the world of things here, deep into it. Cans 
and boxes, hooks, and bins. My voice is spinning out a narrative of 
numbers, soundtrack to the figures that I scroll into the calculator at my 
belt. I've cut lawns and vinyl car tops in a factory. I've dug a sewer line, 
nailed shingles on a roof. No other work I've ever done has taken me so 
far from language as this rhythmic number koan. Beneath my finger 
exercise, time vanishes. Thoughts crowded out by steady and intense 
attention to the numbers. Forty-five times 12 plus 12 plus 12. This surely 
is America's deep language. 

Each shelf becomes an increment, each finished aisle a landmark 
of my wordless labor. In my wake droop paper triangles like flags of 
some explorer, symbols that some tidy, thorough Kilroy has passed 
through. When we emerge five hours later, all our tallies taken and 
confirmed, distance dazzles. Conversation stuns. Our eyes have grown 
myopic staring at close rows of boxes, cans and packages. Stripped now 
of our number grammar, sitting in the cold returning van, we squint 
at rushing headlights, work to read the hazy neons decorating buildings, 
gaze upwards to consult the wheeling, countless stars. 

First Labor 

This is how we spend the weeks before the fall. 
What other 15-year-old best buds get a 40-hour 
summer job outside? Mike and I are yard boys (we 
prefer "groundskeepers") for Founder's Tower and 
the property around it. We patrol the parking lot for 
cigarette butts, hose the dumpster down, mow and 
edge a mile of medians and a dusty field behind the 
Target store. Sometimes we find treasures in the 
weeds. A Playboy magazine. A sawed-off .22. Some 
days AI, the building manager, summons us for 
special quests: we help the carpenter hang sheet 
rock in new offices, move furniture, haul trash a 
secretary's left us in the hall. Mostly, though, the 
weather sets our schedule. Sunny days we mow and 
edge, rainy days we tinker with our tools: clean plugs 
and filters, sharpen clippers, change the tractor's oil 
and the knicked blade of the edger. I'm becoming 
fluent in the universal tongue of handymen, learning 
wrenches can be open, socket, alien or adjustable. 
By Independence Day we're brown and muscular. 
At day's end Mike (who's heavier) asks, "Man, why 
don't you sweat ?" We've polished our impersonations 
of the building manager, the doorman, and the 
painter. We've even marked our Eden with new 
names. "Alice" is the AUis Chalmers tractor that we 
take turns driving to the islands and the field. 
"Maggie" is the legendary mother of all maggots, 
breeding those we flush with sprayer hoses from the 
dumpster base each morning. A bumper sticker on 
our rolling trash bin says, "Support your local ossifer." 
Mounting Alice in mid-August, I feel a whim. With 
careful, geometric cuts I carve "Hi" in the center of 
the big field's fescue, my message to the building's 
workers, the hidden higher-ups. Then I attempt a 
cartoon profile, a self-portrait in the stubble of the 
job's terrain. At noon, I take Mike up the Tower's 
elevator to his mother's air-conditioned office. 1 
lead them to the window. Mike slaps my back and 
laughs. His mom calls me artistic. The work looks 
pretty good from here, read in these scratched designs 
these sunny self-employments.

Donors Get First Preview of 
Newly Renovated King Building 

BY Elizabeth Out land Branner, Director of the Annual Fund 

Members of The Kiracofe Society, the 
Rufus Bailey Society, the Mary Juha 
Baldwin Society, the Hill Top Club, 
the Founders' Club and the President's 
Associates were treated to a sneak 
preview of the newly renovated King 
Building on August 6. 

MBC President Cynthia H. Tyson 
welcomed 50 guests to the historic 
occasion which showcased the new 
residence hall and conference center. 
Board of Trustees Chair Anna Kate 
Reid Hipp '63 thanked the attendees 
for their generous support of the 
college, saying that their support allows 
MBC to complete important projects, 
such as the renovation of King. After 
a tour of the building, guests enjoyed a 
light lunch in one of the new 
conference rooms. 

Housing 53 students, the King 
building offers suites in what formerly 
was the Mirror Room and lofted rooms 
in what was the gymnasium. The 
handicap accessible suites consist of 
two rooms connected by a bathroom 
and will be shared by four students. 
The lofted rooms consist of an upstairs 
sleeping area, downstairs living area 
and bathroom and will be shared by 
two students. 

Two large conference rooms and a 
kitchen are situated in the basement, 
originally the location of the pool. The 
conference facilities will be in use by 
various groups during the year. It is 
expected that the building will be in 
great demand for summer programs. 

The King Building boasts a state- 
of-the-art air conditioning system 
which utilizes less expensive energy 
during non-peak hours to make ice. 

The Makv BALtiwiH College Magazine 

The ice is then used during the day to 
cool the air in King and Wenger Hall. 
Eventually this system will also cool 
Hill Top, Memorial and Rose Terrace. 

Built in 1942 as the "Centennial 
Building," marking Mary Baldwin 
College's 100th anniversary, the King 
Building was the first building to be 
constructed on campus in 30 years. The 
building was named after William Wayt 
King, the business manager who was 
employed at MBC from 1890 to 1936. 
The construction of this gymnasium- 
auditorium was important at the time 
because it indicated the college's 
commitment to remain in downtown 
Staunton. The first public use of the 
building was in September 1942 when 
Greer Garson appeared there at a 
Defense Bond Rally. 

We are proud that our most 
dedicated supporters were the first to 
inaugurate the use of the newly- 
renovated King Building. 

The King Building, built in 1942, was 
named after William Wayt King. King 
was employed by the college from 
1890-1936, most of that time as 
business manager. A redhead himself, 
King founded the "Red Head Club" on 
campus. Legend has it that he rode 
his horse to work every day.

October 4, 1941.
